Wine experts say this White wine delivers as promised, with a thick, succulent mouthfeel accented in spicy vanilla and nutmeg. It has a plump, easy approachability and an easygoing but concentrated quality of fruit. Ripe plum and red Bordeaux-style red berry notes are mellowed on the nose, suggesting grilled beef or lamb, just like the winery`s Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate shows ample spice, trending from purple fruit to soy sauce with a full, lengthy finish. It`s plump but balanced, with ripe blackberry and raspberry flavors. This is full of ripe, jammy fruit, and the tannins are very supple, showing considerable acidity for a concentrated wine. It`s ripe, almost to the point of sweetness, with a line of acidity that lifts the dense fruits. For all its richness, the wine is austere and dry.
Wine experts say this White wine shows the qualities of the 2007 vintage. It`s lean, compact, but richly textured, and loaded with pineapple and peach fruit. Delicious now, it should not be missed, and should pair well with aged cheese. This is an extraordinary wine. A unique experience, with a wonderfully long finish. Evidence of the old world. See? Very old world, really. Dry and tannic, amazingly complex, but under control. Needs time. Should begin to open up after 2008, and improve with more bottle age. The Shea is the new heavyweight world of Zinfandel. Shows a massive, cool-climate Syrah, with intense, huge flavors of raspberries, cherries, cocoa, red currants, bacon and pepper, set against a strongly mineral-driven, earthy, clay-inspired body. Beautiful now, and should easily develop over the next 6–8 years.
Wine experts say this White wine presents itself as relatively straightforward, with refreshing notes of apple, dried currant and melon. It`s light bodied and refreshing, with a mouthwatering backbone of acidity. Spice and cream dominate this 100% Sauvignon Blanc, but there is plenty of ripe fruit also. The fruit has a touch of herbaceousness, some green pepper and some red-fruit flavor. The texture is smooth, very full bodied and easy to drink. Honey and almond notes provide a fruit-driven contrast to the crisp, grapefruity flavors. This is a wine that is lightly styled, but definitely refreshing. This wine is a blend of Grenache (50%), Cinsault (40%) and Counoise. The Grenache (40%) is immediately at the forefront of the wine, aromas and flavors giving a sense of a tense structure.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as advertised. It`s dry, crisply acidic and fresh with apple, lime and melon flavors. Feels just a touch flabby, with a jolt of citric acidity, but it`s a very versatile enough addition for food. This sparkling wine is light golden color, showing aromas of lemon, honey and yellow rose. The flavors are soft and straightforward, with a slightly sweet finish. A simple Chardonnay, it has strong acidity with apricot, orange and pineapple flavors. It`s long, sweet and simple, but it will work well as an apéritif. Hard cherry and spice aromas give this 100% Merlot some pungentiness around the edges. The finish brings a little green note, but it`s not too severe to complain about. This easygoing, fresh wine has plenty of acidity, light fruit and a touch of spice.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it`s shown. Subtle notes of vanilla, spice and spice can almost substitute for a light red wine, while the fruit both has an oaky presence and is tonic and crisp in mouthfeel. Pair this with shellfish or smoked salmon. The nose on this plump, full-bodied wine offers pungent, green mushrooms, wet slate, yellow pear and oyster shells. The mouthfeel is oily and stony, with balance and tame bubbles. Cabernet Sauvignon (37%) and Cabernet Franc (34%), a blend of Sangiovese and Syrah, opens with big cherry and wood tannins accented by cedar, graphite and dried herb. Layers of cocoa, black pepper and chocolate waft out of the glass and into the warm finish. The herb- and spice-laden flavors emerge with finesse.
